Graffiti and litter problems
Litter is a real problem for us here in Chislehurst. The Society, in partnership with other Chislehurst organisations does what it can to minimise its impact on us all.
If you are interested in the Society's work in this area and feel that you would like to help, please contact us.
After years of effort, it looks as though graffiti has become less of an issue for us, but the careless and indiscriminate dropping of litter in our streets and open spaces.
The Society holds bi-monthly clean-up mornings where volunteers, supplied with the necessary equipment, collect litter and clear graffiti from areas in and around the High Street, including the Commons. Look here for more details...
Much more remains to be done. With cut-backs in financing from LBB and the police, more of the burden of litter-picking lies with local organisations like ours.
The Society is always on the lookout for more volunteers. We appreciate that the demands upon a everyone's time are many and varied. However, if you want to ensure that the ward of Chislehurst doesn't slowly but surely take on the appearance of a worn out inner-city borough, with the psychological impact this would have on our community, as well as the negative impact it would have on property prices, then we need your help now.
Whether you can devote 10 minutes or 10 hours a month, your help will be invaluable.
